I find it really hard to believe that Bob can't remember the cadence of the song considering he's heard it played so many times... do you think he's doing it on purpose or something in order to make it new and fresh? Cuz all that he's doing is completely mangling JG's beautiful vocal melody that makes the simple two chord verse interesting! Agh!

I was at Rothbury and whenever Bob would fuck with a song, it was alright, cuz EVERYBODY in the audience was singing it the right way. The vibe I got from the people singing the real song around me was, "oh man, Bobby, you sure are a silly goose, at least you can still play the guitar like a mothafuckin' riot!"...

This is making me remember how much I enjoyed hearing Warren Haynes deep and soulful singing on Shakedown Street.

John K does bring some serious heat on guitar though.

There will never be another Jerry Garcia. I think I'll crank up a JGB show from 1975 now. PEACE
